072117-Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the treatment that Jay Leno receives?

Jay Leno remained hospitalized on Friday after undergoing surgery following a gasoline accident that resulted in severe burns to his face and hands.

The injury occurred after a gasoline fire broke out in the legendary comedian and ‘Tonight Show’ host’s garage over the weekend. While working on his car, a clogged fuel line opened, spraying fuel in his face and a nearby spark ignited the gasoline.

Leno underwent excision and graft surgery for second and third degree burns and was due to undergo another procedure this week.

In a statement earlier this week, Leno said he needed “a week or two” to get back on his feet. But on Wednesday, Dr. Peter Grossman, medical director of the Grossman Burn Center, said Leno “realizes he may have to take it a little slower than he originally thought.”
